People are losing faith in polls and pollsters and its little wonder when you look at folks such as John V. Corbett.
In what was an outright vile tweet today, Corbett said he wished that the late Barbara Frum had died childless. I am presuming he has a beef with one of Ms. Frum’s children who have earned some profile and reputation. What a way to express himself towards them.
Vulgar, thoughtless tweets are hardly rare on twitter. What has to be kept in mind though is that Mr. Corbett is a pollster who the Toronto Star appears to use rather regularly.
In looking at the website for Corbett Communications, it is not hard to see the strong bias Corbett holds as a series of almost obsessive anti-conservative press releases are listed.
Pollster bias is hardly a new thing but John Corbett’s bias is beyond the pale and his repugnant tweet certainly exposed it.
The internet is forever so I thought it best that we document this online.
That way when one sees any polls from John Corbett Communications in Toronto Ontario they know what sort of biased pap this man produces.
It says quite a lot about the Toronto Star and the polling companies who choose to use John V. Corbett’s services as well.
Pretty hard to take anything released by this guy seriously.
In light of his tweet, he has some very serious issues.
Thank you for this. You are my hero for calling out this horrible person and his horrible tweet.
Not nasty like this jerk but Ipsos has to be one of the most consistently biased pollsters out there. Always overstates Liberal support.
Woops, meant Nanos pollsters.
